Did you know you can cook pizza using your own grill–gas, charcoal, or even a Traeger ? It ’ s the following best thing to having your identical own pizza oven, and it doesn ’ metric ton require any particular equipment or a pizza rock !

We make a draw of homemade pizza at our house, and the grill is decidedly my darling direction to cook them ! The crust gets dainty and chip on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. I love to make personal pan size so that everyone can choose their own toppings .

How to Grill Pizza:

  • Make sure grill is well cleaned and oiled, to prevent the crust from sticking. Close the grill lid and preheat to about to 425 degrees (medium-high heat) for 10 minutes.
  • Stretch or roll dough into desired size and thinness (or divide into equal portions to make smaller pizzas) and place on a piece of parchment paper. 
  • Brush the top(s) of the prepared dough with oil, then lift the parchment the dough is on and carefully flip the crusts onto the grill, oil side down. Peel the parchment paper off.
